As of January 1, 2022 the Grotto is closed for renovations, to make way for our expansion! We can't wait to open our doors and show you all we have in store for the future of climbing in Guelph. Our opening date is TBD, but after all the COVID-19 related delays we faced getting to this point, we're doing everything we can to not keep you waiting much longer. 

While the new gym is being constructed, our website will be undergoing some maintenance as well. Read on below for key pieces of information. 

Keep those fingers warm and we'll see you again soon!



Prepaid Members
Your membership will be frozen at no charge on the day we close and will be unfrozen on the day we reopen to the public. The number of days we are closed will be added to your membership once we reopen.

EFT Members
Your membership will be frozen at no charge on the day we close and will be unfrozen on the day we reopen. Your account will be charged accordingly once we reopen to compensate for lost time during freezing. Regular freezing fees of $5 per month will restart when we open for members who tell us they would like to keep their membership frozen. EFT Membership fees will increase for new EFT members in 2022. We will post the new fees on our website once available. If you have an ongoing EFT membership from September 30 or earlier (even frozen), your fees are locked in until April, 2022.

Punch Passes
Punch Passes never expire, so you are good to go! You can keep using your passes once we reopen. Punch Passes can be purchased through our presale page while the presale is ongoing.

Youth Programs will start again in 2022. We are currently revamping our Youth Programs in order to cater better to experience level instead of age alone. For updates on Youth Program registration, sign up for our email subscription.

Are you a Team participant? Coach Julia sent all participants an email about alternative plans.

We will not have new-facility bookings open to the public while we are closed to finish our expansion. We will post updates on social media and this page as soon as we have more to say!
